Doesn't work , I wouldn't have cared otherwise . On the 5.1.0 bundle I 
got the message that there was no debugger helper . With 5.1.1 no

So if this is considered a serious bug (sounds like it), and it is fixed in 5.1.1, we might consider delaying the 2.8.0 Qt Creator update in the online installer until 5.1.1 is out.

I can't say that it renders QtCreator unusable , but it's a problem that 
I have to switch layouts to use the copy/paste functions .
